We're two dozen local volunteers eager to provide free help to small businesses in Pasco and Hernando counties of Florida.
Historically known as the Service Corps of Retired Executives, our chapter indeed consists mainly of senior managers with years of relevant, real-world experience. We're not academics or just taken some training courses; we've actually lived it.
Whether you are trying to start a small business, expand an existing small business, or buy/sell an on-going small business, we can provide free face-to-face mentoring and counseling regarding the many issues that you may find daunting. Most often, we assist in the development of business plans for financing, locally enabling about $4M annually in small business loans. We can also draw instantly upon our nationwide pool of over 11,500 mentors for specialized help.
Free weekly seminars are also offered on a variety of topics regarding startup and operation of your small business, mostly in conjunction with our local libraries, as well as online access to myriad free small business tools and templates to give you a head start to success.
